amp Trillium, the joint venture between ampCNG and Trillium CNG, recently opened a public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Newport, TN. Located at Time Out Travel Center at 1130 W. Highway 2570, the new station is a place for CNG-powered trucks and cars to refuel as they travel through western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee.
“The Newport station services all CNG vehicles 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can fuel multiple Class-8 trucks simultaneously thanks to Trillium CNG's proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressors,” the company said. “The station's close proximity to I-40 makes it an ideal location for amp Trillium's anchor customer.”
Donna Rolf, president of ampCNG, said: "Newport is a great location for our newest CNG station, as it provides a convenient refueling location for long-haul trucks traveling through Greenville, Spartanburg and Asheville and will encourage more CNG adoption in Tennessee and North Carolina. We're pleased that it only took a few short months to open this station and are proud to continue making CNG more easily accessible nationwide."
Joel Jansen, vice president of Trillium CNG, said: "We are proud to make CNG available to heavy-duty fleets traveling the Newport, Tennessee corridor. An American fuel, CNG offers a variety of tangible benefits over diesel and gasoline, including lower fuel costs, long-term price stability and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Fleet operators know that we stake our reputation on delivering a great fueling experience for our customers – fast, safe and reliable."
